Our client was driving her car in the lane closest to the curb. There were three lanes of travel in her direction. Traffic blocked the view of her car by oncoming vehicles. A truck driving in the lane next to our client stopped and waived a driver going in the opposite direction to turn in front of it. The driver turned in front of the truck, continued through our client’s lane without stopping, and collided with our client’s car. The car accident made our clients preexisting back injury much worse. Her physicians testified her back pain after the accident was caused by the car accident. She underwent spine fusion surgery for her lower back. The surgery was not completely successful because she was still in pain and needed a fentanyl pain patch on a daily basis. The case settled on the second day of trial after our experts testified.
